Looking for advice... Maybe some commiseration... Something. My husband's ex-wife has been angry at him for asking for a divorce since it became final 7 years ago. She told him back then that he had killed her dream of the family, the house, etc. She told him she'd be angry for a while. My husband and I got married two years ago, and he has a 13 and 10-year-old. I thought I could be the bridge to create a calm coparenting environment, but she belittles us to the children, and only communicates to let my husband know what he owes each month. Each summer she puts the kids in a three-week summer camp without consulting him, and he's now missed five years of father's days with his kids, but we are quick to hear if we have somehow violated page 5, section 2, line 3 of their divorce decree.
Sorry this is so long. Is there anything that we can do to ease this situation? This is a woman who cut out her sister and mother from her life post-divorce because She asked them to stop talking to my husband and they wouldn't. Sigh.
